Advocacy

When it comes to making changes at the government, school board or administration level, parents are the best advocates for their children. As taxpayers and community members, parents have a real voice when it comes to advocating for changes that help children succeed in school and in life.

At Bandology, we know that engaging in the political world can be daunting! That is why we have created our Education Policy summaries and How to Advocate guide. Go through this information to uncover how education is funded and allocated, and to learn what politicians do, how to contact them and how to write an effective email.

Not only does Bandology bring more music to more kids through programming, but also through internal advocacy efforts! During our 2023 Band Camp, Bandology coordinated a record number of political visitors, creating meaningful, lasting relationships with political decision-makers.

We are always happy to sit down with parent groups or school councils to talk about the long-term value of music education. Please contact us now at info@bandology.ca or (905) 469-6278.
